Singapore: Manufacturing and electronics PMIs edge higher in June

July 3, 2021

The Purchasing Managers’ Indices (PMIs)—produced by the Singapore Institute of Purchasing and Materials Management (SIPMM)—for both the manufacturing and electronics sectors rose slightly in June, thus moving further into expansionary territory as the two sectors continue to gradually recover from last year’s pandemic-induced downturn.

The manufacturing PMI inched higher to 50.8 in June from 50.7 in May, thus moving further above the 50-point threshold that separates expansion from contraction in the sector and marking the twelfth consecutive month of expansion in the manufacturing sector. The higher reading was attributed to faster growth in new orders, output and employment.

Likewise, the electronics PMI increased to 50.6 points in June from 50.4 in May, and thus clocked the eleventh consecutive month of expansion for the sector.

FocusEconomics Consensus Forecast panelists expect manufacturing output to expand 9.2% in 2021, which is up 2.0 percentage points from last month’s estimate, and grow 4.0% in 2022.
